The New Jersey Field Office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announces the release of a Final Restoration Plan/Environmental Assessment (RP/EA) addressing in-river injury to natural resources resulting from hazardous substance releases at the American Cyanamid Co. Superfund Site in Bridgewater Township, New Jersey. The RP/EA, developed in coordination with co-trustees (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the State of New Jersey, identifies the removal of the Weston Mill Dam on the Millstone River, and a feasibility analysis and design of fish passage at the Island Farm Weir on the Raritan River, as the selected restoration alternatives. The Trustees made a draft of this RP/EA available for public review and comment on May 10, 2016.
